Yes it is. BTW thats an old version of the standard. Look for SUSv3

Nonsense! tr '[a-z]' '[A-Z]' means:
- replace [ with [
- replace lowercase ascii with capital ascii
- replace ] with ]

It happens quite conveniently that the extra crap needed to make
legacy shitware happy is entirely compatible with the standard syntax.
If you read SUSv3 it talks about this issue and recommends using the
brackets even though they're not needed.
